Did any anime ever make use of progressive/post-metal?

I highly doubt this, and don't expect to get a positive on it because of post-metal's origin and focus in the United States in its early and relatively recent beginnings (except Cult of Luna; we can all thank Sweden for unleashing their genius upon us).

I'd just be interested to see what sort of anime would make use of music like this. What sort of metal that has found its way into a few choice anime productions tends to be representative of what metal as a whole is imagined to be by most of the general populace (most of whom don't really listen to too much of it), or to be the mainstream and trendy kind that we tend to hear all too often, if that makes any sense. For those of you who have never heard of what I'm talking about, take a few good examples:​watch?​v=​OAlJYyyK_1s​watch?​v=​4w7VxCWLBsE​watch?​v=​f74myu27UoY​watch?​v=​17NCUaWob2k

...I mean, fudge it: I figure if we can have a live-action film about an assassin doing a job in Spain with the likes of Boris, Earth, and Sunn O))) in its soundtrack, then we can have some kind of Ergo Proxy-esque mindtrip experience involving post-metal bands in its background melodies. Razz

You saw that Marty Friedman did a version of the Yuri Yuri theme song:​marty_friedman/​status/​637775836280545280
